I hope that some relief comes to those who lost loved ones and friends on 9/11/01. I almost lost some young friends of my own... but though Bin Laden was a terrible and evil man, I can't help but feel some pity for him and his family too (as I did for Hussein, his dignity was so well borne).
I am a pacifist. I can't help it. Watching those people just jump or fall and die was one of the most horrible things I have ever seen (on TV). And yet, "Send not to find for whom the bell tolls...
Hope that there is some kind of feeling of peace and security now that Bin Laden is dead, though, for the children of the lost. I think of them almost every day. If it had been my relative... who knows how I'd feel?
I wish the hawks of the country would give Obama some credit for this revenge killing, since they value it so highly.
